A few things Halloween

Yesterday we had a Halloween party for Ethan and Simon’s friends. Fifteen kids running around, and no one was hurt! I count that as a success, don’t you? Of course I need a shovel to clean up their rooms, but that’s not too bad, considering the downstairs is STILL clean. Woohoo!

We served mozzarella eyeballs, veggies and dip, fruit salad, and breadsnakes with marinara sauce. Oh, and monster cupcakes.
Blurry monster cupcakes! What can I say? I was in a hurry.

I think they came out fairly well considering this was our first time playing with fondant. Simon cranked out the cupcakes. Mom and I were rather slow. Mom and Simon also made the bread stick snakes, which, I was told, were very tasty.
My favorite decoration was this rug.
There’s something about standing on a goofy rug that makes doing dishes and cleaning up┬áso much easier.
